Wayne Smith — 1930 Ford Model A

NZV8 - - EVENT REPORT -

With so many great cars out and about on Fri­day, it was hard to pick a stand­out, but Wayne Smith and his cool-look­ing 1930 Model A Ford were fi­nally se­lected. It’s not just one thing on the lit­tle truck that catches the eye but, rather, a com­bi­na­tion of things — from the colour and chrome work through to the wood­work on the back tray and the all-im­por­tant stance. Wayne has owned the truck for near on 12 months and takes it out as much as pos­si­ble. Power is sup­plied by a 350ci Chev ZZ4 crate engine, through a GM TH700R4 four-speed trans­mis­sion and trusty Ford nine-inch rear. Wil­wood disc brakes have been fit­ted all round, sit­ting be­hind the 15x8.5-inch and 15x10-inch Cra­gars, which are wrapped in rugged BF Goodrich rub­ber. Wayne gets to sit his bum in a full leather in­te­rior be­hind a Flam­ing River steer­ing wheel and tilt-ad­justable col­umn, and to en­joy lux­u­ries such as power win­dows, power steer­ing, and air con­di­tion­ing.
